When is the right time to get involved in therapy?
Updated: Apr 9
When to get involved in therapy is such a loaded question. For some, there isn’t a right time, but rather a life-altering situation. For others, it is a growing unhappiness in life and a want to change that. For some, it's needing a safe, nonjudgmental and empathetic space to explore life’s challenges.
There’s never really a “right” time to get involved in therapy. Nor do problems have to be serious for you to benefit from therapy. No matter what time it is, there is always a benefit from therapy. Whether it is feeling heard, validated, or learning new ways to manage stress or cope--there are always benefits. Therapy is a way to maintain your health, the same as going to the gym or seeing your primary care physician. Therapy is a safe space to explore your experiences, your patterns, and your beliefs with an expert. Therapy is many things and none of them center around it being the "right" time.
The right time--is when you can make time. Here at WTHC we work to help those with busy schedules still be able to enjoy therapy through offering a few unconventional hours for those who work daytime jobs. We also offer teletherapy which eliminates getting in the car, commuting, sitting in the office. All you have to do is log on to our platform and there is your therapist. After the session, you are in your own home or safe space and can get back to your day as you please while hopefully feeling a little bit better or more hopeful.
We hope to see you soon,
